Fairfax County Police say 21-year-old James Gregory of Falls Church is facing two felony charges of carnal knowledge and the use of a communication device to solicit a minor after detectives say a juvenile victim told their parents of unlawful sexual contact with Gregory.

After an investigation last month, detectives believe Gregory used several social media accounts with false names while also misrepresenting his age to solicit sex from minors. He was arrested Wednesday, Feb. 19, and is now out on bond.

Victim specialists from the Fairfax Police’s Major Crimes Bureau’s Victim Services Division have been assigned to ensure that the victim is receiving appropriate resources and assistance.

Detectives are seeking anyone who may have had inappropriate contact with Gregory to call their Major Crimes Bureau detectives at 703-246-7800, option 3.
